Betting Tip: @ Ben Vrackie @ 7/1 with betfair

A typically competitive renewal and you can make a case for plenty but the one I’m drawn to most is John Gosden’s three-year-old BEN VRACKIE, who is far less exposed than most of these after just four starts.

He was a beaten favourite in a three-runner Group 3 at Goodwood (1m6f) last time but the winner Maid Up (who was getting 3lb) is very smart and takes her chance in Saturday’s St Leger, so it’s a better run than it perhaps looked at the time.

While he’s going to make a better four-year-old, Gosden must think he can win a handicap off his current mark of 104 – his entry in the Group 2 Long Distance Cup backs that up – and he gets into this with a nice racing weight of 9st 1lb with Frankie Dettori booked. He’ll do for me at Betfair’s 7/1.

Of his rivals, Walton Street has to be feared after his solid thirds in a Newbury Group 3 and Royal Ascot handicap the last twice, although he’s giving the selection 12lb. Speedo Boy is the other runner I’ve got plenty of respect for as he’s still unexposed as a stayer and given he gets further, he’ll be finishing better than most.
